Quick question for you British folk: is "Oh, sod off!" something a kid (12 years old) would ever say. Is it especially vulgar? Or is it on par with "Get lost"?

It is middling vulgar and yes I think a 12 y.o. might say it depending on their background

I just wonder if Sod off is starting to sound a little old-fashioned. If you wait three years I'll ask my eldest.

sod off is pretty old fashioned now, it's something people in their mid to late 20's would have said at that age. It's not particularly vulgar, but to be honest most of the 12 year olds I know would be more inclined to tell you to get f*cked than to sod off. But as Waylander pointed out, it really depends on the background as well.

And they get worse as they get older. That's a 15 year old in Wayland's avatar.:D

It'll depend on whereabouts in England your books based?

Different regions in England use different words. Like 'Jog On' or 'sod off' never get used where I live but 'nob off' does :)

"Sod off" might still be used. Certainly in the south.

If you want to know how young British people talk these days, you need to look up The Inbetweeners on Youtube.

You can see a good usage of "sod off" here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXwzYY6OV_U&NR=1&feature=fvwp), about one and a half minutes in.

with 'Blackadder' becoming a cult thing there are kids who say 'Do a Blackadder' meaning to sod off!

"Sod off" is a little old-fashioned -- it's true that language gets worse through the generations. I wouldn't be surprised to find a 12-year-old dropping the F bomb anymore. You could say it, but if you did, it might be worth noting that s/he learned it from their parents. "Sod off" is more like parents would say if they didn't want to *really* swear in front of their children.

I've never heard that one before!

Where 'bouts does that get used if you don't mind me asking?

1st heard in Yorkshire, older teenagers though. What I would call the 6th Form, very intelligent bunch.

Used here in NZ, use it myself!

Not, I agree, a widespread usage, but certainly among the fans.

"Jog on" tends to be more of a London thing, in my experience. People who've said that kids these days are more likely to throw the f-bomb at you than tell you to sod off are right.

And, FWIW, I wouldn't class "sod off" as vulgar at all. It's the kind of thing that would have got me in trouble with teachers when I was a kid, but only for the intent behind the words rather than the actual words themselves. It's rarely heard now, though.
